PONS IP se incorpora a fundación COTEC

PONS IP, a global consulting firm specialized in Intellectual Property, has officially joined the Cotec Foundation for Innovation as a permanent member after the business meeting that both entities held at the headquarters of the organization with the presence of Cotec’s General Manager, Jorge Barrero, and PONS IP’s General Manager, Nuria Marcos, together with their respective work teams.

This addition strengthens PONS IP’s position as one of the leading companies in intangible asset management for organizations through intellectual property. PONS IP currently has the largest team of patent professionals in Spain and is the main benchmark in the design of strategies and the protection and promotion of technology. PONS IP is the leading consulting firm by number of patents filed at the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office (SPTO) as well as in volume of trademarks protected before the European Union, with nearly 10,000 trademarks registered with the EUIPO.

Cotec’s general manager, Jorge Barrero, praised this addition for its contribution to analyzing one of the main challenges of today’s economy. “We need to invest more in intangible assets and, at the same time, better measure what we have already invested. PONS IP will be an excellent ally to contribute to these Cotec discussions,” says Barrero.

For her part, PONS IP General Manager, Nuria Marcos, pointed out that joining the Cotec Foundation “is a recognition of the role played by intellectual property as a strategic lever to boost innovation and growth for companies”. According to the head of the consultancy firm, this incorporation “is a great opportunity for PONS IP and the organizations that are already part of Cotec, to contribute to promoting a greater culture of management, protection and defense of intangible assets in our country, one of the great unresolved issues of our economy and key to improving our competitiveness and the future of our productive system”.
